Smoky Corn Chowder with Squash and Peppers

Smoky Corn Chowder with Squash and Peppers

 

This Smoky Corn Chowder with Squash and Peppers would work well any time of the year; however, it is really the perfect Summer-to-Fall transition soup.  It utilizes the veggies at their peak (feel free to sub fresh corn if you have it on hand!).  The dish is also light enough for still-warm days, but cozy enough for starting-to-cool nights.

The entire dish comes together quickly and easily.  Serve with some cornbread, a light salad, maybe some broiled tomatoes, and you have a simple, weeknight friendly meal that tastes like it took a while.

How to make the tortilla strips to top?  Thinly slice fresh corn tortillas, cut the strips in approximately 1″ pieces.  Spray a pan with olive oil spray. Heat pan to medium-to-medium-high.  Add the tortilla strips and spray again, lightly, with olive oil.  Cook, tossing often, until lightly browned.  Add some salt and/or chili powder if you like.
